, massachusetts. the town is number one on "money" magazine's new best small towns in america list for weathering the recession well and having a big lake and being close to both boston and providence. so close that you can commute to work in either city. it is also diverse. nine churches, seven synagogues and one of the largest mosques in new england. louisville, colorado, and vienna, virginia, round out the top three. >> bill: never heard of that city in massachusetts. nine churches in a town of 17,000? congregations are rather small, i would say because some people do not go to church at any rate. what we have -- very significant yesterday. there are two unrelated decisions regarding -- related to law enforcement that really were related. they weren't planned that way but they really do fit together and say something very important, i think, about law enforcement in this country. a lot of us have said for a long time that we went way overboard, you know. 10, 20 years ago. the last -- the previous generation about -- gotta be tough on crime. tough on law enforcement. crack down on crime. throw
the world attended it. it was really a time for america to shine and to show that it was coming into its own as a world power. guest: mrs. grant loved it. she bought two things for the white house from there -- one was a shield that showed characters from milton's "paradise lost." then she bought a more endearing piece -- she hated the old james monroe centerpiece with mirrors on it -- she bought a hiawatha centerpiece, which was about this big, and it shows a canoe in the middle and hiawatha lounging on a bearskin rug. that was the new centerpiece for the white house. she bought it there on exhibit. it is still in the silver closet at the white house. host: on twitter -- who were the first lady's staff at this point in the process? guest: there was no social secretary then. usually the ladies got together and filled out the blanks for invitations. it was president and mrs. grant and the honorable blank and blank. their friends would come over for tea party and they would fill out the blanks. she had mary mueller as the housekeeper. is that the one who traveled to europe with her? guest: i
movement and has created today the most deeply and reliably republican region in america. the story is more complicated in arkansas. since 1964 it has voted for more republican presidential candidates than democrats. but it also gave us bill clinton, still has a democratic governor today. since reconstruction, only a grand total of three republican governors. as recently as three years ago three of the four house members and both u.s. senators from the state were democrats. arkansas didn't vote for barack obama in 2008. if hillary clinton, that's former arkansas first lady arkansas hillary clinton had been the democratic nominee, there's a good chance she would have carried the state. arkansas is not tom state like this. it's representative of a very specific area of the country, a cluster of rural states around apalacha and the ozarks, states that did not abandon the party with the same ferocity as the deep south. you've got arkansas, missouri, kentucky, tennessee, west virginia, even louisiana. these are states that al gore had a chance to win in 2000. if he had won just one of them, it w

america, that was influencing congress and the american people. obviously he was talking about israel but he never mentioned them by name. which is quite different from what we've heard before. ahmadinejad referred to israel as the cancerous tumor that has to be removed. he avoided this kind of language. >> i saw you were questioning the new president yesterday. as always, thank you, sir. >>> turns up the heat on corey booker but is it too little too late? we'll check in on the new jersey senate hopeful with just days to go. first, time for a little white house soup of the day. tom yum goong. east asian soup. we'll be right back.
